The Emperor is back -- and this time he's out for blood! Following his battle with Luke Skywalker in Dark Empire II, Emperor Palpatine was forced to occupy an inferior clone-body. That body is now aging rapidly, and Palpatine's final, irrevocable end is near unless he can infuse his line of clones with genetic material from a Jedi bloodline. His target: Han and Leia's youngest child, Anakin!

Death stalks Emperor Palpatine! The Emperor's aging process is rapidly accelerating and his doom is foretold by the oracle stone. The key to his problem, the solution to his aging, is close at hand; Han and Leia's youngest child, Anakin, can reverse the process. Palpatine must kidnap young Anakin and claim the boy's body as his own! But for the sake of their son, and for the sake of the galaxy, Han and Leia cannot let that happen -- even if it means losing their own lives.

Emperor Palpatine has a new weapon -- one that can annihilate a planet. But he's not targeting a planet -- he's targeting the future of the Jedi, Leia's children. It looks like a hopeless situation for Luke Skywalker, who has the critical task of protecting the children. But it's not the first time Luke has found hope where none existed. The finale to the Dark Empire trilogy is collected here.
